Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I have heard that Cockatiels can live up to 25 years old.  I have a cockatiel that's 17 years old.  How old is the oldest cockatiel, does anyone know? idunno.gif

My cockatiel Henry hatched around June 2007, meaning he's coming up on his 5th birthday.  I know that's not as impressive as a 23 year old, but I first started coming home to him when I was still in high school, and now I'm getting married and bringing him with me.  Time sure flies; I have pictures of him sitting in my hand at just a couple days old.  I hope he lives as long as the cockatiels you guys have; he's a great little buddy.

My childhood pet cockatiel lived to be 'at least' 26 years old. She was an adult when I got her, so her true age is unknown... but she was over 26.

Mine was around six months old when I bought him in October 2007 (I bought him at PetSmart, which I won't be doing the next time I buy a bird), so I suppose it's his fifth birthday this month! ya.gifCurrently in his coconut toy contentedly saying, "blur" every so often.

Our Papa Bird was hatched around October/November 1988. So that makes him 23! He's been with my husband since the beginning of 1989. He's a very cool bird! We also have Sassy who joined our family in July 2005. Her name says it all roll.png

Oh I am so sorry for your loss!!  :hugs  It is never easy to lose them. Especially when they have been with you as long as your Topper. I hope your heavy heart heals soon. :hugs
